Ice Cubes



I promised to show you the dress I made a few weekends ago and here it is- finally! It took me two days from start to finish- but most of the time was spent working on the middle section. Its constructed with horizontal pleats and there are three sections to make. The dress was a success in my book because it came out exactly as I had sketched and designed it. There is nothing more gratifying than bringing something to life exactly the way you had envisioned it. Its wonderfully lightweight and comfortable so there wont be any suffering from the summer heat. What do you all think?
